Word solitaire, if you love Scrabble you will adore this game. It's clever, fun and challenging to the maximum.

Features of Brabble:
The objective of this game is to create 4 - 7 correct English (or German) words that will make the green lights on the left of the screen light up. The words have to be 8 letters or less.
You must move around the letter tiles in order to make words. The tiles will only let you move them if the letters make a word or part of a word.
Like solitaire, you can only uncover the last letter on the end of each row. Once you have uncovered the last letter of the row it is now available to use in your game. Sometimes the letter really helps you, and sometimes it hinders.
You can move entire words, rows or parts of words throughout the game with the objective to free up all the uncovered tiles and have them available to form words.
(Trying to describe this game is difficult, I nearly gave up to begin with as it felt it was too hard to decipher the rules...stay with it, it's worth it!)
At times you become stuck and either have to rethink your entire board or start again. It is a super game to enhance determination and persistence. (I have found myself slipping away for a few minutes to get a game in!)
There is a YouTube movie showing a demo of how to play. I highly recommend watching it so you can easily see what to do. Once you understand principle of the game then you are ready to begin.
I am so excited that there are 75 levels to challenge my mind. Our nine year old, iPad Lad is really enjoying this game too, he is learning to move the letters around the board and is picking up new words and reminding himself of how many words he already knows!
The feeling of satisfaction when you win a level is immense. Great for children's self confidence and word prowess.
